Welcome to TheatreZone’s 19th season
Love stories from the comic to the edgy and music ranging from rockabilly to show tunes are in the lineup of our musicals for our 19th season. Lighthearted stories such as Neil Simon’s Little Me and Million Dollar Quartet, and darker dramas like Bonnie & Clyde: The Musical, and Carrie: The Musical, entertain with hilarity in horror, and comedy in tragedy.
Neil Simon’s Little Me
March 7-17, 2024
Little Me, a musical comedy written by Neil Simon with music by legendary composer Cy Coleman, relates the incredible story of Belle Poitrine, born in humble circumstances but determined to gain wealth, culture and social position. She achieves diva status through advantageous marriages and love affairs, bringing her the stature she seeks when the men meet unfortunate and comic ends at opportune moments. The story is based on a novel by Patrick Dennis (Auntie Mame). The show debuted on Broadway in 1962 starring Sid Caesar with choreography by Bob Fosse. Its ongoing appeal and success inspired several revivals and multiple Tony Award nominations. The 1998 revival starred Martin Short who won the Tony Award for best actor in a musical.

Carrie: The Musical
April 25-May 5, 2024
Stephen King’s blockbuster 1974 debut novel, “Carrie,” and the classic 1976 film are the basis for Carrie: The Musical. The story portrays the horrifying consequences when highschooler Carrie White is bullied by the popular crowd and is virtually invisible to everyone else. What no one knows is that she has special powers, and if pushed too far, is not afraid to use them. The 1988 musical adaptation was revived off-Broadway in 2012, receiving multiple award nominations and the Best Off-Broadway Musical award from the Off-Broadway Alliance. Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
